- Dec 1, 2013All--
I, too have had a problem with Rosewill from Newegg. In my case it was a
wireless adapter for a PCI slot. It worked OK for a few weeks, then --Zilch.
I replaced it with one from TigerDirect. (Sabrent, I think) It has worked
fine in two machines for over 2 years.

I would stay away from Rosewill. I bought a 4 port card through Newegg.
The card worked great controlling the radio. I ran into problems when
the PC sat idle for a while. The serial port would hang up and the only
way to fix was to re-boot the computer. This was with DX-Labsuite, I
never tried with N1MM. Also never used with FSK.
I have a new Dell Optiplex 3100 with Win7 Pro. Yes, I had all of the
hibernate/sleep/power management options set correctly. I suspect the
problem was in the card. I even had some contact with Rosewill
"support", I use that term lightly. They were pretty useless.
I eventually bought a FTDI chipset USB-Serial adaptor (Sabrent) and all
